Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Does it rough cut at lower settings? With engine off, and deck engaged, is the belt tight enough that it can not be turned on the pulleys? It needs to be tight, so it does not slip when it hits load! Are the blades on correctly? Turned up end on the blade always goes up!
offset end down???
The ear on the end of the blades go UP> is that the way you have them?
Did you see my response? Were blades on correctly?
# ***** and # ***** are the sorings that should tighten the idle and the belt. There is no adjustment.
